02:17:02martin1__o/ all! question, how do I get nimpretty? I thought it was included in the standard installation but I can't seem to find it
02:18:22FromGitter<zacharycarter> https://www.gdcvault.com/play/1016629/Classic-Game-Postmortem-Ultimavv
02:19:57FromGitter<zacharycarter> if you want to talk about emergent gameplay
02:20:08FromGitter<zacharycarter> there is nothing comparable to UO
02:22:24FromGitter<arnetheduck> @Varriount sorry, I don't understand the question.. C functions are compiled to.. machine code library functions that use the C ABI - nlvm can generate C-ABI-conformant calls, as can rust.. Nim language is underspecified in terms of ABI so there's no freedom to use any other ABI than C, realistically. rust has its own ABI, then if you want to interact with C, you have to ask for the C ABI specifically (for your
02:22:24FromGitter... types / functions)
02:24:01FromGitter<Varriount> @arnetheduck Ah, I see. So nlvm can interoperate with compiled C libraries, but it can't do things like "include" headers of a C library.
02:30:12FromGitter<arnetheduck> well, C header files basically describe the ABI of the stuff you'll find in compiled libraries - but you can also write these same descriptions in other languages (rust etc) if they're sufficiently powerful. nim is not (hence it needs to `include`header files so that the underlying `C` compiler will take care of it) but it's close enough to cover a lot of ground. there's nothing special about header files really -
02:30:12FromGitter... instead of using the one from the upstream project, you could just write your own for a particular library, but it tends to be convenient to not do that
02:40:59FromGitter<arnetheduck> another difference I guess is that rust does not use header files to describe the ABI of the library code it generates.. instead, the compiler generates the ABI description and writes it together with the object - this way, there's fewer ways to screw up, because there's no risk of library and header file mismatch (ie in C, there' no guarantee that a particular version of a header file matches the compiled library)

09:28:24FromGitter<mratsim> lolwut?
09:28:47PMunchHaha
09:29:02FromGitter<mratsim> na, things that involves strings are not for me (yet)
09:29:06PMunchWell a trivial test with parsecsv doesn't seem to make it that much faster

09:31:34PMunchHmm, anyone got any large csv files?
09:31:43PMunchThe one in the repo is only 4.9Mb
09:31:59FromGitter<mratsim> otherwise just add that to the repo: https://nim-lang.org/blog/2017/05/25/faster-command-line-tools-in-nim.html
09:36:52PMunchhttp://ix.io/1ro8/
09:37:07PMunchSeems to be about the same speed, this is running on the csv file in the repo
09:39:50Araqput it in a main proc
09:41:59PMunchThat made it slightly faster: http://ix.io/1ro9/
09:42:36AraqI don't understand it, our csvparser used to be good in benchmarks

10:18:54Araqunknown, maybe 30 minutes but until incremental builds work, Nim is not all that great at compile-times
10:18:55FromGitter<gogolxdong> Is there an estimation?
10:19:47FromGitter<gogolxdong> That's great.
10:20:25CalinouNim builds itself fairly fast for a full-blown language, so it's not too bad

10:40:17FromGitter<narimiran> export just those three, and then in other file you will have autocomplete for only them?
10:41:21FromDiscord_<PusiteGA> hmm will try that but dont think that will work, it will still show procs from all other files i think
10:41:41*Yardanico joined #nim
10:42:33FromDiscord_<PusiteGA> or meybe i can just fallow some naming convection, if i am making like OOP stuff i can create object Car and then name all function CarOpenTrunk
10:42:35FromGitter<narimiran> not if Car is the first argument to your functions, and you type `myCar.`
10:43:04FromGitter<narimiran> don't use PascalCase (uppercase first letter) for procs
10:45:56federico3Calinou: it would be interesting to find out if sccache can be used with Nim and how well it works
10:51:32Calinoudistcc-like systems aren't very useful for me
10:51:56Calinouit would be nice to create a Mainframer template for Nim projects perhaps still: https://github.com/buildfoundation/mainframer

11:00:51Calinouthe Mainframer template should be an easy thing, see the Cargo example. It's just so people can copy-paste it and get going in minutes

13:33:56FromGitter<arnetheduck> ooh! if you could annotate your functions with their complexity and have the language do an automatic analysis...
13:37:46FromGitter<alehander42> oh yeah, I wondered about that before
13:37:54FromGitter<alehander42> I found some cost-based type system papers
13:38:06FromGitter<alehander42> which deal with similar stuff, but I don't think there was mainstream lang doing it

13:47:48FromGitter<yglukhov> Araq: just noticed you're moving ospaths back to os. What's the reason for this? I kinda like the fact they are separate. IMO semantically ospaths imply zero reliance on the os or filesystem. ospaths are portable (and semantically correct) across all platforms including in-browser JS, but that's not the case with os.
13:50:49Yardanico6k stars, yay! :)
13:57:20Araqyglukhov: found a way to make os.nim work with NimScript and NimScript is easier to use when there are fewer special rules
13:57:53Araqalso ospaths grew some stuff that it not just string handling with paths so the distinction became arbitrary
13:59:39FromGitter<yglukhov> I understand that it's technically possible to merge ospaths with os, I just liked this os-agnostic distinction, and if you ask me, would keep it that way, and fix it if the distinction went arbitrary.
14:02:17FromGitter<yglukhov> e.g. seing `import os` in a module tells me this module depends on the environment somehow. basically "has side effects" =)
14:02:35Araqwell ospaths exists for Nimscript and if we enable e.g. createDir for NimScript this couldn't be moved from os to ospaths and instead nimscript.nim got the declaration ... it's all messed up
14:03:08Araqthings were better before we had ospaths IMO.
14:03:38Araqalso there are things like isHidden() which is an OS call on Windows but string handling on Unix
14:04:29FromGitter<alehander42> maybe we can have ospaths for e.g. JavaScript which just export the things which are really compatible with everything
14:05:54FromGitter<yglukhov> piling everything into one heap is one way to fix it of course. the other way would be to tidy it up and make it uniform for nimscript and nim. surely that would be more difficult, but its worth it in the long run imo.
14:06:26FromGitter<yglukhov> but maybe its just me...
14:08:49Araqyglukhov: if we split it up further other things come to mind
14:09:38Araqfor example, ospaths, osstat, osdirs, oswalk
14:10:00Araqosenv
14:10:51FromGitter<yglukhov> well. ospaths are just paths (strings) to me. osstat, osdirs, oswalk is fs interaction. os is environment, currentdir, etc...
14:11:50FromGitter<yglukhov> maybe it should be std/paths, std/os, and std/fs? =)
14:12:11Araqthe problem with strutils and os and maybe time is that you end importing stuff that you don't need all the time. and while that has no runtime cost, compile-times and memory usage of the compiler increase
14:12:53FromGitter<yglukhov> so how is your os+ospaths merge is going to help here? =)

14:46:00FromGitter<yglukhov> Are you saying if we merge ospaths+os there are good arguments for splitting up further? Or if we keep os and ospaths separate there are good arguments for splitting up further?
14:46:47*endragor quit (Ping timeout: 268 seconds)
14:48:13FromGitter<yglukhov> Actually I'm not concerned about nim performance that much. That's just an implementation detail that doesn't affect language semantics. What I care about is the semantics and usability in terms of stdlib interface.

14:51:53Araqno, I like a big os.nim because that's what every Nim program out there is used to

But it will make my nim programs slightly less readable. Not to mention I would remove even exporting ospaths from os, but you'll find it too radical :).
15:20:47shashlickhave been playing around with wrapping libclang for https://github.com/nim-lang/Nim/issues/8327 and man is it a can of worms
15:26:33*platoff joined #nim
15:27:20krux02shashlick, yea let timothee do it
15:27:49krux02even c++ doesn't have wrapper free interop with c++ you nee do write headers
15:28:43shashlickthat's fine - my thought is to make the wrapper invisible to consumer
15:29:10krux02I don't that it even is a good idea
15:29:36krux02because the wrapper is always a possible source of problems, and then you wand anything but an invisible wrapper
15:30:00krux02you want to be able to see the wrapper and be able to agree or disagree on how it works
15:30:39shashlickwell how it works would need to be documented
15:31:01shashlickC/C++ data types mapping to Nim
15:31:10krux02yea and documentation is the strength on Nim programs
15:32:12shashlickthe C/C++ headers already exist for the lib that needs to be consumed so how it works is already evident
15:32:55shashlickno need for an intermediate representation in nim

15:40:02krux02shashlick, a good wrapper doesn't need the original header anymore, it replaces it.
15:40:49shashlickwell if you are planning on using a C/C++ lib for some reason, you need to know how to use it
15:40:55shashlickit will be documented by that author
15:41:30shashlickso putting a Nim spin on it means additional documentation burden for the wrapper author or maintainer
15:41:41shashlickas well as for the consumer who needs to understand the interop
15:42:25shashlicki guess there's no escape but one can aspire to make life easier for others eh
15:44:32krux02if you want wrapper free interop, use {.emit:"...".}

16:29:01*dom96_w joined #nim
16:30:39FromGitter<arnetheduck> krux02, did you ever get around to implementing alignments and offsets btw? ie the full thing, with platforms / compiler options / os / underlying compiler affecting layout?
16:31:04miranbenjikun: i'm looking at the felix tutorial and the first thing that i've seen is so many unneeded semicolons :)
16:32:30krux02arnetheduck: actually yes
16:32:47alehander42the new sizeof is neat
16:33:01krux02alehander42, thanks
16:33:09shashlickyglukhov: looks like that is deprecated - `For backwards compatibility, if the argument to the emit statement is a single string literal, Nim symbols can be referred to via backticks. This usage is however deprecated.`
16:33:10krux02was a lot of headache
16:33:23FromGitter<arnetheduck> oh cool - how does it work? ie doubles are sometimes 4 and sometimes 8-byte aligned - where do I see which one is used?
16:33:34FromGitter<arnetheduck> ie where in the compiler code
16:33:52krux02specifically the platform dependent alignment part was a mess. But after all it is just about initializing the alignment and size values correctly for the base types
16:35:05krux02somewhere in the compiler there is branching that detects the platform and initializes the alignment value for float64 int64
16:35:16FromGitter<yglukhov> shaslick: i think it has to be reconsidered. the backticks feature is super useful in a lot of usecases. new emit syntax also has an answer to your question, but I find the syntax too awkward. but it can be used in more contexts than the old syntax.
16:35:49krux02when you are not 100% sure if the logic is correct in your platform, there is a test tsizeof..something just run it on your platform and see the results
16:36:26krux02the test is pretty extensive the only thing it can't test is the alignment of a platform that it isn't executed on
16:37:20krux02so if you have an obscure platform with obscure alignment rules that logic might be wrong, but the test will catch it and the logic can be updated to handle that platform
16:38:17miranbenjikun: but other than that, it looks like fun
16:39:36FromGitter<arnetheduck> not sure about "obscure", but if you mean tests/misc/tsizeof, it fails on rpi3 :)
16:39:53FromGitter<arnetheduck> ``````
16:40:21krux02:(
16:40:41krux02I have a raspberry pi 3 so I could run the test on it

16:42:05FromGitter<arnetheduck> right
16:43:37FromGitter<arnetheduck> actually, @krux02, that's a plain 0.19 version (not devel).. is that fresh enough?
16:44:14krux02I think so
16:44:17krux02https://github.com/nim-lang/Nim/blob/devel/compiler/semtypes.nim#L1698
16:44:22krux02there is the logic
16:44:51krux02implement the logic for rpi and it should work
16:44:59*wildlander joined #nim
16:46:13krux02@arnetheduck: there is a comment in the code # Assuming that since ARM, ARM64 don't support unaligned access
16:48:15*jacereda joined #nim
16:48:37krux02pull requests are very welcome here
16:49:16FromGitter<yglukhov> lack of unaligned access support doesn't prevent you from using packed (and thus unaligned) structs though
16:49:56FromGitter<arnetheduck> I'd assume where that is a problem, the c compiler generally does byte-by-byte copies to a register first
16:50:04FromGitter<yglukhov> yep
16:51:21FromGitter<arnetheduck> that doesn't help when you want to rely on sizeof/offsetof etc..
16:52:05krux02as I told you the tests are extensive and packed is fully supported
16:52:25krux02so when you are worried, just use packed and do manual alignment with padding byte arrays
16:52:56krux02or fix the logic for your platform
16:53:48benjikunmiran: Yeah, I think it looks pretty cool
16:55:39FromGitter<arnetheduck> I wonder though, the github page states: ⏎ ⏎ ```code paste, see link``` ⏎ ⏎ is ppc64/armv6l tested anywhere? [https://gitter.im/nim-lang/Nim?at=5be5bc0bc0e6da07fefdb04d]

17:06:38FromGitter<krux02> we support it, we don't claim it is totally bug free
17:07:17*dom96_w joined #nim
17:10:21FromGitter<arnetheduck> wouldn't "support" imply though that at least the test suite passes?
17:11:28FromGitter<arnetheduck> ie gcc and others solve this by having "secondary" platforms that are kind of supposed to work, but don't receive regular testing

18:33:31FromGitter<kdheepak> @yglukhov I have a really dumb question about nimpy, when this issue (https://github.com/yglukhov/nimpy/issues/18) was closed I thought it would allow raising a Nim Exception and have the equivalent Python Exception generated, but that appears not to be the case. Is that even possible?
18:34:12FromGitter<kdheepak> I've opened an issue to ask a related question here, https://github.com/yglukhov/nimpy/issues/64 mainly because I couldn't find documentation on how to raise the corresponding error.
18:36:58narimiran@kdheepak it seems to me the exceptions work in python->nim direction, not the other way around :/
18:37:06*Perkol joined #nim
18:40:26FromGitter<kdheepak> I see a `raisePythonError` here: https://github.com/yglukhov/nimpy/blob/3ee68d0/nimpy/py_utils.nim#L127
18:40:39FromGitter<kdheepak> But this just causes Python to segfault (?) if I call it.
18:41:20*platoff quit (Quit: My MacBook has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
18:43:05FromGitter<Vindaar> @kdheepak yeah, as narimiran said, issue 18 was closed to support mapping Python exceptions to Nim exceptions. The code you link there is the code that does just that
18:43:48FromGitter<kdheepak> I see.
18:44:03FromGitter<kdheepak> I think it shouldn't be too hard to do it the other way around.
18:44:46FromGitter<Vindaar> If I'm not mistaken the following needs to be added: https://docs.python.org/3/c-api/exceptions.html#c.PyErr_NewException to raise from Nim -> Python
18:44:59FromGitter<kdheepak> That's correct.

20:51:57PMunchHmm, yeah I guess it could
20:52:54FromGitter<tim-st> would be very nice, I think the code should work directly on all os'es but only tested on windows
20:53:21PMunchCould you create an issue on the nimlsp repo?
20:53:27FromGitter<tim-st> sure
20:53:29PMunchJust so that I don't forget :)
20:55:33FromGitter<tim-st> btw when you change the temp foler string to "nimlsp" it runs on windows too
20:55:41FromGitter<tim-st> folder
20:55:47PMunchHmm, not quite sure why. But when I copy nimsuggest to somewhere other than the Nim repo and compile it it's super slow..
20:56:11PMunchOh cool
20:56:37FromGitter<tim-st> Though the compilation only works when I think jsonschema debugging is turned off
20:57:23PMunchHmm, it's slow if I compile it in the Nim folder as well
20:57:44PMunchI guess "koch tools" applies something else than "nimble build" does..
20:59:12PMunchOh yeah, changing it to what koch tools uses it's much faster
